Thanks

You need to get a vinyl cleaner. Should be able to find one at any store that sells vinyl. I hope you haven't waxed it. Modern vinyl floors should not be waxed, it dulls them.

Asking how to maintain a vinyl floor isn't telling us much. There are all types of vinyls. Can you be specific? Vinegar is best when used in your salad.

You'll have to be more specific than just Armstrong. Armstrong makes dozens of lines that of course vary in quality and finishes. If you can figure out what you've got, that'll be very helpful.

Essentially you need to start with a strong cleaner made for your vinyl. If it's a true "no wax" floor whatever shine it has will come through. If it's still dull, the floor needs to be cleaned again, it's worn out or never had much of a shine.
